The controversial boxing promoter Don King used the N-word while introducing Donald Trump during an event Wednesday at a church.

"They told me, 'You got to try to emulate and imitate the white man and then you can be successful, ' so we tried that", King said.

King, wearing a sparkly denim jacket, bejewelled with patriotic emblems, then recalled something he once told singer Michael Jackson about assimilation. If you're a dancing and sliding and gliding n***** - I mean negro - you are a dancing and sliding and gliding negro. "If you are intelligent, intellectual, you're a intellectual negro", King said.

"That man was hands up, that man went to the vehicle, hands up, put his hands on the auto, I mean to me it looked like he did everything you're supposed to do", Trump said of Terence Crutcher, who was shot to death by police in Tulsa on Friday.

The boxing promoter then said, "So dare not alienate because you can not assimilate, so you are going to be a Negro 'til you die".

Taking the stage moments later, Trump called King a "phenomenal persona" and said: "Ah, there's only one Don King".

Trump's latest foray into the black community not only sought to connect with voters in Cleveland, home to a large community of African-American voters key to Clinton's prospects in OH, but also with moderate suburban voters, who frequently hear Clinton describe Trump as extreme.

"Our next president is going to inherit a hell of a lot of problems and it is going to take a problem-solver to get us back where we want to be and where we should be", he said. "Even my conservative constituents believe in diversity. and that's why many of us are supporting Hillary Clinton to the nth degree", she said. "In my opinion that was a awful situation", he said, referring to the Tulsa shooting, "and we've seen others". "We did it in NY, it worked incredibly well and you have to be proactive and, you know, you really help people sort of change their mind automatically".

"I felt like there was a pause", she said.

Donald Trump's appearance at a Cleveland Heights church on Wednesday was a collection of what, in a different time, would have been unthinkable.

Trump said: "Our African-American communities are absolutely in the worst shape they've ever been".

During and after Trump's appearance, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign coordinated a protest across the street.

Trump continues to fail in attempting to gain black votes.

Trump, joined by running mate Mike Pence at the event, has routinely praised police officers in his speeches to supporters.

In August, Trump drew criticism for his characterization of black America when he said at a rally, "You're living in your poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed - what the hell do you have to lose?"

Trump also caused controversy Tuesday night when he told a almost all-white crowd in North Carolina that "we're going to rebuild our inner cities because our African-American communities are absolutely in the worst shape that they've ever been in before".
